While we know the phrase ‘standard metal switchboard’ gets thrown around a lot, and there are nuances to every design, we have curated three metal switchboard systems that should cover the basics.
The S Series, which is our standardised switchboards, comprises of just a PAN assembly and an option for a 63A or 100A main switch. Tails from the main switch to the PAN. E/N bar to suit.
The LC Series switchboard distribution options include: PAN Assembly (includes wiring tails), Multiclip or, Comb bar distribution. Or, you can opt for a switchboard with just the main switch and rails for you to populate. All options come with a 100A main switch and E/N bar to suit. Wiring is not included with multiclip or comb bar unless requested.
The W Series is our metal option for domestic applications. You can choose if you want any distribution (Multiclip or comb bar) to go with the rails and 100A main switch. Again, wiring is an optional extra. E/N bar to suit.
In the past, we have created switchboard designs that fits a clients standard application. If you need to add extra MCBs or re-design a switchboard we have shown to suit your needs, please contact us to request a quote.

At emf Switchboards, we are electricians building switchboards with the electrician in mind. Safety, reliability and simplicity are the key features of all our designs. Our aim is minimise installation costs while providing safe and reliable switchboard solutions to match the needs of the site.
The past 20 years of building switchboards has allowed us to design and refine our own switchboard systems so that you, the sparkie, gets the best version of our systems in your switchboard.
Routered Masking Panels:
LC and W series switchboard masking panels are made from punched 1.2mm Zinc plated steel and powdercoated white.
All S Series switchboards and custom switchboards come with 4mm grey PVC gland plates top and bottom unless stated.
These allow for:
Double Hinged Insulated Geartrays for S Series metalwork:
We use a range of different materials for these gear trays;
These allow for:
Formica, or Typanel as its sometimes called is an insulated material that works well as a metal substitute gear tray. So well in fact that it has been mistaken as the old asbestos fuse panel it replaced. We use a 3 Axis CNC router to cut out our sheet materials to your specifications
Black Formica sizes:
Need to upgrade the internals but want to keep the existing cabinet? This system is custom made from a series of rails, brackets, distribution and breakers, or whatever you need to fit directly into your switchboard. Please contact us for more information.
Schneider Multiclip distribution allows the mixing of 1, 2, & 3 pole MCBs and RCBOs to be mounted on the same rail which also saves on space. These come in 3 or 4 Pole, full or 1/2 row (better suited for smaller applications where its a bit tight) and rated from 63A to 200A.
Comb busbar can be used when there is smaller Amp rating. 100A, 1-3 pole and 12 or 24 way. This also can be a handy solution for smaller enclosures. Please note: you cannot mix & match MCBs & RCBOs on the same rail when you use comb bar. RCBOs don’t fit on the standard comb bar.
PAN assemblies are the standard distribution system we use for MCBs and can be set up for various brands. Our PAN assemblies have steel bolts between the poles to prevent faults if there is a short circuit. RCBOs don’t fit on our PAN assemblies nor can you mix and match MCBs and RCBOs on the same PAN assembly.
Stainless Steel enclosures, please contact us for sizing and availability.
Yes, we can wire your board so it is right ready to go, or supply them loose for you to wire in. Send us a list of what you need and we will take it from there. Please note, there will be an extra cost to you switchboard and possible lead time.
Follow this link to go the contact us page to request a quote if you have switchboard specifications to send through. Please include as much information as possible.
Please contact us for trade pricing. You can also request a pdf or hardcopy catalogue.
For complete IP rated enclosures, we aim to keep at least 10 of each size in stock (dependant on shipping and previous orders).
Lead time from the date of order depends on the complexity of the switchboard, what size it is and how readily available the parts are.
